Sept. 18, 2014—Enerpulse Technologies, makers of Pulstar with PlasmaCore spark plugs, announced Wednesday that it has donated nearly $3,000 worth of spark plugs to the Delancey Street Foundation for use in its fleet vehicles.

Operating various vocational departments, such as an automotive repair shop, the Delancey Street Foundation has five locations across the U.S. that reintegrates substance abusers and convicted criminals into society through residential rehabilitation and vocational training.

According to Robert Layton, a resident and department head of corporate development for the Delancey Street Foundation location in Los Angeles, Enerpulse’s donation provided a huge boost to the program.

“We appreciate friends like Enerpulse who donate products to our cause,” said Layton, noting that Delancey Street Foundation does not accept any government funding.

“In an effort to equip our residents with marketable skills, we have an automotive garage where they are trained to maintain our fleet of vehicles,” Latyon explained. “The residents were responsible for installing Pulstar plugs on our fleet of vehicles, primarily older Saturns that have been driven hard in tough L.A. driving conditions.”

Pulstar performance expert Al Unser Jr. sent an autographed Pulstar shirt to Delancey Street and applauds its efforts in providing a place for people with nowhere to turn with a place to go for help.

“I believe in second chances, and this is a great organization that is positively influencing the individuals it serves,” Unser said. “I applaud the efforts of any organization that gives people access to the resources they need to turn their lives around. I’m proud to be a part of an organization like Enerpulse that also holds these ideals.”
